At the moment XMLHttpRequest Level 1 prescribes that open() invoked with a non
same-origin URL should throw. This is incompatible with XMLHttpRequest Level 2.

Instead we should align with XMLHttpRequest Level 2 (and some implementations)
and treat non same-origin URLs as a network error during the request phase
(i.e. after send() is invoked). This gives a better migration path towards CORS
and allows us to test this requirement in browsers that implement (parts of)
XMLHttpRequest Level 2.

Along with this we should then also start throwing when the user/password
arguments of open() are non-null for a non same-origin URL as XMLHttpRequest
Level 2 does that as well.
